The style named after the knit waistcoat favored by James Brudenell—the 19th-century British army officer also known as the 7th Earl of Cardigan—has since become a staple of a modern man's wardrobe, worn by students, royals, and rock stars in equal measure. With its unexpected mix of military and collegiate details, The Iconic Letterman Sweater represents the diversity of influences that define the modern Polo sensibility.
